Afternoon tea has become extremely popular again in recent years. The professional skills and techniques that you learn on this full day workshop will enable you to create stunning sweet and savoury treats for an afternoon tea worthy of any top hotel!
Examples that we have made in the past include salted caramel cake with pecans, lime and white chocolate tart scented with thyme, a cigarette biscuit rolled and filled with whipped ganache, spiced glazed biscuits, Mediterranean savoury scone (tomato, olives, courgette, spring onions, thyme, cheese.
The workshop starts promptly at 10am and finishes at 4pm. A light lunch will be provided of homemade soup and the school’s own sourdough with cheese and fruit.
Like all our workshops, this course is hands-on and you will leave the day equipped with the skills and knowledge to recreate impressive dishes at home.

All refreshments, equipment and aprons are provided. A booklet of the day’s recipes is also provided at the end of the workshop.
Everyone works individually at their own workstations, sharing only a 4 burner induction hob and standard size fan assisted oven with one other learner. We all work together at the same pace with each stage demonstrated before you do it yourself.
It is essential that you wear flat shoes with a closed toe – this is for your safety and comfort as we will be on our feet most of the time.
